our family home perhaps... where most of the clan resides!
you?here, where i live now... it's been the family home of my husband, his children, his brother, his parents and grandmother over a course of 50+ years. he helped build some of the house, and has worked the land and made changes to outbuildings and landscape to suit the family needs over the years. the hill is known by the family name and we are surrounded by woodland, pasture and streams/ponds. my husband wants to live here all his life, so yeah--it's special to me, too.
just finished putting up a load of pickled peppers--so pretty, yellows, bright oranges, reds and greens--destined for the shelves down in the basement. is there some form of preserve you make (be it jelly/jam/pickles) you think looks almost too pretty in the jar to open?
